Reliant, experienced and super personable!
From start to finish Erika was amazing to work with, she was affordable, adaptable and efficient.
She recommended a trial run for hair and make-up (this is worth every penny). What I liked about this was she included the trial in her total price (no hidden fees), whereas other vendors I was looking at would charge for the trial on top of the price for wedding day hair and make up.
Erika was super helpful when it came to my make up. I usually don't wear a lot of makeup and was worried that I was going to come out looking cake faced. She was able to give me a timeless, natural look that looked great in my photos.
My overall experience with Erika was amazing. I would recommend her to any future bride!

Perfection Hair and Makeup by Erika's reply:Thank you Jackie for everything, including this great review! I appreciate the time and consideration that you took to write this. I had such a wonderful time working with you. You and your bridal party were so fun and friendly! I’m so glad you chose to work with me.
Not bridal quality!
I had a hair trial booked with Erika; she came to my house and started by curling my hair. Right away I could tell that doing hair was not her full-time job as the way that she handles hair seemed awkward. My hair was repeatedly put into knots and tangles during the curling process. When she began my up-do, my part was not centered or straight, my hair was barely pinned and just hanging. When she told me she was done and to go check in the mirror, I couldn’t believe that she thought my hair was “wedding day worthy”. If you aren’t great at doing your own hair, then perhaps the services she provides might be acceptable for you; however, if you are someone who is into glam and beauty, her work likely won’t meet your standards. Most disappointing $80 I’ve spent.Sent on 11/04/2019
Perfection Hair and Makeup by Erika's reply:I’m very sorry that you were unhappy with your pre-wedding hair trial. A trial is by nature not bridal quality hair styling but if I had thought you were this disappointed, or you had let me know that you were this disappointed, I would have gladly done your trial for free rathe than offering to give you another trial for free in the future. You could have, and still can, contact me and I would be happy to offer you a refund as I would never want someone to feel like their money was wasted and I understand it’s frustrating to feel like you didn’t get the results you wanted or expected, however, that’s why we have trials, in order to make sure everything is a fit before the actual wedding. I do agree with you that the style you picked was not my specialty, we all have our strengths and clearly that style was not mine on that day. Again I’m sorry you had a negative experience at your trial and hope you find someone who is a better fit for your hair styling needs on your big day.

Wonderful wedding hair and makeup
Erika did my hair and makeup for my wedding on June 22nd of this year, from our first contact she was warm, professional and prompt in her responses. She was wonderful! My hair and makeup and my bridesmaids hair exceeded my expectations. She was incredibly open to feedback and my preferences. Erika was open to offering extra support to my bridesmaids the day of and I was so glad to have her kind energy as a part of my wedding day. I felt beautiful all day and my hair looked perfect even after many spins on the dance floor!Sent on 03/07/2019
I could not recommend Erika more highly.

Thank you Erika!
What a wonderful experience it was to have Erika be a part of our wedding day. I looked at many different hair/makeup vendors, but they were either overpriced, had iffy reviews, or I wasn’t hugely impressed. But with Erika, she was very reasonably priced and her work was just beautiful. I am SO happy with how our hair and makeup looked on the big day. She was professional, always on time, flexible and easy to chat with. Thank you Erika for making us all look and feel beautiful. Highly recommend!Sent on 05/07/2019

I would highly recommend Erika.
Erika has a lot of expertise with hair and makeup, which was evident from our initial consultation and our email correspondence prior to my wedding day. I was impressed by her knowledge of products and which ones would work best for my oily skin to last the whole day. She effortlessly did hair for 4 of us and my makeup in only 3 hours! Everything looked exactly how we hoped it would and she made the experience so calm and fun. I would highly recommend her, and she was very affordable as well.Sent on 18/11/2018
Perfection Hair and Makeup by Erika's reply:Thank You Stacey for your thoughtful review of your experience! It’s so great to hear that you are happy with everything and had fun getting ready. I loved being part of your day and really appreciated you asking me! Thanks again for everything.

Fun and fabulous
Erika was so lovely to work with. She catered to me and my four bridesmaids wants for our beauty with ease and didnt mind if we were particular or if we were unsure of what we wanted. She had fun with us as we got ready and fit right in with our group. It was as if we'd been friends for a long time! She has such a variety of products and colors that we each felt we could show our own individual styles for our hair and makeup on my big day. It was great and I'd highly recommend her to anyone!Sent on 09/11/2018
Perfection Hair and Makeup by Erika's reply:Thank you Christina for your wonderful review! I had so much fun with all of you on your wedding day and am so happy you did too. Your recommendation means a lot to me and I am very appreciative of you taking the time to write about your experience working with me!

Fantastic hair and make-up artist
Erika did a wonderful job with my hair and make-up and services for a few of the other girls. My hair looked exactly how I wanted it to, she really does a great job. I requested an up-do and it lasted all day in photos and through the night dancing. She is also super nice and fun to chat with as all of us were getting ready!Sent on 10/09/2018
Erika was very professional and responsive to emails, her rate is very reasonable compared to most Calgary based hair and make-up artists.
Highly recommend Erika!
Perfection Hair and Makeup by Erika's reply:Thank you for your support and wonderful review Lindsay! I had lots of fun with you and the girls on your wedding morning too and am very glad you were happy with everything (I always want to make sure those up-do’s last so I have my tricks to make sure they do!) Thanks again.
